Here’s a bunch of information, links to stories and fun stuff that you can share with your friends, co-workers and family members.

Recapping the win over Georgia Southern

The football team did what it needed to in beating Georgia Southern 35-24 last week.

Here’s the Flats Lines review, complete with grades on each unit on the team.

Here’s Ken Sugiura’s follow on what gives the team hope and concern heading into the bye week and the rest of the season.

Here are Steve Hummer’s thoughts on if Tech can get back into the ACC’s Coastal Division race.

“We never played the game” Podcast

Jeff Schultz and Zach Klein spent a long with coach Paul Johnson, who said a lot of things I hadn’t heard before.

For example, he spoke at length about the team’s previous defensive coordinators.

Give it a listen.

 

ACC Power Poll

A commenter from last week’s ACC’s Power Poll said that it was obvious that reporters from North Carolina stuffed the ballot to ensure those teams moved up. This week, Milo from the Daily Picayune, Peter from the Daily Bugle and Clark from the Daily Planet didn’t let their regional bias show.  To complain, follow me on twitter @DougRobersonAJC and let your voices be heard!

  1. Clemson (1): The Tigers (7-0, 4-0) defeated N.C. State 24-14 when the Wolfpack missed  short field goal as time expired. Next: Off.
  2. Louisville (2): They (5-1, 3-1) defeated Duke 24-14 with a little bit of help from a silly roughing-the-kicker penalty. Next: vs. N.C. State.
  3. Florida State (3): The Seminoles (5-2, 2-2) once again had a difficult time defeating Wake Forest, which doesn’t make a lot of sense. Next: Off.
  4. North Carolina (5): The Tar Heels (5-2, 3-1) bounced back from the debacle at Virginia Tech to handle Miami. Next: at Virginia.
  5. Pittsburgh (7): The Panthers (5-2, 2-1) handled their business in defeating Virginia. Next: off.
  6. Virginia Tech (4): How could the Hokies (4-2, 2-1) lose to Syracuse? Next: vs. Miami on Thursday.
  7. Miami (6): The Hurricanes (4-2, 1-2) have lost two consecutive games under Mark Richt. Next: at Virginia Tech on Thursday.
  8. N.C. State (8): The team (4-2, 1-1) pulled an N.C. State in the loss to Clemson. Next: at Louisville.
  9. Wake Forest (9): One of the great mysteries is why the Demon Deacons (5-2, 2-2) give the Seminoles so much trouble. Talk about weird. Next: Off.
  10. Georgia Tech (10): Tech (4-3, 1-3) did what it needed to knock off its in-state rival. Still difficult to tell how good or bad this team may be. Next: Off.
  11. Duke (11): The Blue Devils (3-4, 0-3) are going to rue not taking advantage of their chance against Louisville. Next: Off.
  12. Virginia (12): They (2-4, 1-1) saw their two-game winning streak snapped by Pitt. Next: vs. North Carolina.
  13. Syracuse (13): Big win for the Orange (3-4, 1-2) over Virginia Tech last week. Next: at Boston College.
  14. Boston College (14): The Eagles (3-3, 0-3) were off, so count it as a win. Next: vs. Syracuse.

 

Tech in the NFL

As you send your ideas (hint, hint) for content for our little Tuesday conversation, I’ll try to add them. Here’s one asking how Georgia Tech’s players did in the NFL last week:

  • Jeremiah Attaochu, Chargers, OLB: One tackle in a 21-13 win over the Broncos.
  • Morgan Burnett, Packers, safety: Ten tackles in a 30-16 loss to the Cowboys.
  • Adam Gotsis, Broncos, DT: No tackles in a 21-13 loss to the Chargers.
  • Michael Johnson, Bengals, DE/OLB: Three tackles, including a sack, in a 35-17 loss to the Patriots.
  • Shaq Mason, Patriots, OL: Started the 35-17 win over the Bengals.
  • Daryl Smith, Bucs, LB: Off.
  • Demaryius Thomas, Broncos, WR: Five receptions for 35 yards in a 21-13 loss to the Chargers.
  • Darren Waller, Ravens, WR: No receptions in a 27-23 loss to the Giants.
  • Philip Wheeler, Falcons, LB: One tackle in a 26-24 loss to the Seahawks.
  • D.J. White, Chiefs, CB: Four tackles in a 26-10 win over the Raiders.

 

 

Basketball rebounds

Josh Pastner wants his team to play fast. How fast? Really, really fast (I work with words). Here’s a story about how the team is doing at fulfilling his demands.

I’m going to start posting scouting reports on each Tech scholarship player, starting later today. The info comes from Pastner.

Recruiting Rewind

Wendall Carter, so skilled he can dribble a deflated basketball, has set his official visit date to Georgia Tech. I don’t know if he used Travelocity or Expedia. I’m trying to find out.

Che Evans, a proud member of the Class of 2020, has picked up an offer. Evans is from Baltimore, site of two of the greatest shows to ever grace television. Can you name them? Try in the comments section.

Aliki Vimahi, a defensive end from Hawaii, has received an offer from Tech. Out-of-state tuition at Georgia Tech in 2017-18 is almost $50,000 year in 2017-18… if you’re curious.

Forward Nassir Little, a four-star prospect from Orlando, unofficially visited Tech last week. I unofficially visit Tech at least two times a week. I’m not a four-star prospect.
